Summary

Following the international success of its first monograph Modern to Classic, the award-winning Landry Design Group proudly presents Private Estates, an intimate look behind the gates of fifteen of the firm’s recently completed one-of-a-kind residential projects. Once again, the firm's versatility shines throughout these elegant modern-day estates, which include splendid contemporary homes and masterfully executed villas influenced by Italian, French and Spanish architecture. Sought after by some of the world’s most influential people and with current projects throughout North America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe, Landry and his team continuously set new standards of quality in high-end residential design. Complemented with a foreword by Richard Landry, an inspiring introduction by acclaimed architectural critic Joseph Giovannini and over 450 color photographs, Private Estates is sure to become a cherished source of inspiration for anyone planning their dream home. The firm’s ability to create within the influence of architectural precedents or to freely invent within contemporary parameters displays a unique talent that has attracted the attention of today’s movers and shakers, including such notable clients as Kenny G, Wayne Gretzky, Mark Wahlberg, Tom Brady, and Gisele Bündchen.
